During the ceremony, Zain was recognized by H.H. the Crown Prince’s representative H.E. Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs and Minister of State for Municipal Affairs Fahad Al Shula, Secretary-General of the Kuwait Awqaf Public Foundation Mohammed Al Jalahma, and Deputy Secretary-General for Management & Support Services and Head of the Forum’s Organizing Committee Saqer Al Sejari. The recognition came to shed light on Zain’s allocation of the entire proceeds of the company’s Waqf for this year to the humanitarian efforts and campaigns of the Kuwait Food Bank, which operates inside and outside of Kuwait.
Zain expressed its pride in this recognition from KAPF, which further highlights the company’s commitment in enriching the culture of giving and social contribution through launching humanitarian campaigns and supporting initiatives adopted by leading non-profit organizations inside and outside of Kuwait. Zain prides itself on the long track of records and contributions it has put in philanthropic areas over the years, being one of the leading companies in the private sector.
The Kuwait Awqaf Public Foundation recognized Zain last year for its role as one of the first Kuwaiti companies to dedicate a KD 1 million Waqf at KAPF since 1996 as endorsed by the Board of Directors, where all of the Waqf’s annual proceeds are dedicated for various charity programs every year. This year’s entire proceeds were dedicated to the humanitarian efforts of the Kuwait Food Bank both inside and outside of Kuwait. Such efforts include distributing meals, holding Iftar banquets, offering food baskets, as well as conducting relief campaigns all year round.
Zain spares no efforts to achieve its comprehensive Corporate Sustainability and Social Responsibly Strategy that closely focuses on supporting humanitarian initiatives. The company strongly believes that launching and supporting humanitarian initiatives help infuse a sense of responsibility into members of the society, and help support those who are in need of help.
The 26th Waqf Forum was held to highlight the most prominent achievements, charity initiatives, and relief projects adopted by the Kuwait Awqaf Public Foundation across local and international levels and in collaboration with the various entities and organizations from the public and private sectors in Kuwait. The event also witnessed the recognition of these entities and organizations as success partners.
